It's not going to affect anything outside our own planet. Relax. Take your chinchillas and the tree on your balcony, and find somewhere safe that the leap second doesn't know exists. smiley - winkeye

I'll battle fof the leap second, using my smiley - spork to get time for the smiley - hamster s to escape with the smiley - pony s and smiley - fish and smiley - panda and smiley - badgersmiley - run
